One of the major strengths of universities at the current time is the ability to give students the opportunity to study part of their course abroad.

Course mobility

At Bachelor's and Master's level, UNamur students have the opportunity to undertake a period of study in a partner university abroad. This type of mobility is called "course mobility".

Traineeship mobility

At Master's level, students have the opportunity to undertake a traineeship in a university, a laboratory, or another institution such as a research centre, or a private or public sector company. This type of mobility is called "traineeship mobility".


Various mobility programmes have existed for several years with the main aim of encouraging mobility thanks to financial support (study or traineeship grants):

  • the Erasmus+ programme, which funds mobility to European Union countries and some associated countries (notably Norway, Iceland, Turkey and Macedonia).
    Switzerland is not part of the Erasmus+ programme, but the Swiss Federal Government undertakes to use its own resources (Swiss-European Mobility Programme) to fund student exchanges to and from its universities;
  • the Erasmus Belgica programme, which funds mobility between the three Communities of Belgium;
  • the Bourse pour la Mobilité Internationale (BMI) programme (Grant for International Mobility), which is specific to UNamur and operates to fund mobility for students outside Europe;
  • the Fonds d'aide à la mobilité étudiante (FAME) programme (support fund for student mobility), which operates to fund mobility outside Europe, by supplementing the BMI grant;

To find out more about the opportunities existing for your study programme, interested students are encouraged to contact their Faculty coordinator.

By adhering to the Erasmus+ University Charter, UNamur has undertaken to respect the fundamental principles of Erasmus mobility, which include academic recognition of the student’s course during a mobility period and the application of the ECTS principles.
